This mobo is an Asrock (Asus) K7VTA Pro rev. 1.02. I don't know if its
chipset supports firewire, but there don't seem to be any unused pads
that could be used for an optional firewire connector. Also I was
wrong about the number of fuses: There's a place for a fourth fuse, in
front of the first PCI slot, near the SATA connectors. One pad
measures 5V, the other is probably floating because while there's 0V
across the pads there's also 0V between that pad and ground. Near each
missing fuse are some missing small components, most labelled as
resistors or capacitors, others unlabelled.
This is my first experience with Asrock, so I don't know if the mobo is
high quality or not, but unlike some ECS and PC Chips mobos where all
the electrolytic capacitors are a Taiwanese brand, like OST, some of
the caps around the CPU voltage regulator seem to be Japanese because
they're brown and labelled "KZT", which I've read is United Chemi Con.
